Turmeric is a brightly colored yellow root, which has its origines in India and Southeast Asia, where it has been used for hundreds of years against various illnesses. Much of turmeric's physiological effects are due to its ability to strengthen and stabilize cell membranes and thus the resistance towards infection.
Turmeric has a number of natural compounds known as curcuminoids, which possess potent antioxidant properties. Turmeric can help protect the skin from sun burn and it is often used in connection with radiation therapy due to the properties of curcumin that counteract the inflammatory reaction that takes place when the skin is exposed to burning.
Curcumin may also have a very positive impact on the effects of diabetes, which is likely due to its antioxidant properties and the positive effect on cholesterol. Turmeric moreover promotes a healthy function of the gut and liver.
Recent research support that Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that reduces blood pressure.
Organic Turmeric 700mg contains a high concentration of powerful antioxidant organic curcuminoids along with 5mg of organic pepper, which enhances the absorption of Turmeric in the body and thus maximizes the health benefits of Turmeric in the system.
